The Expert Centre Restitution provides information about looting and restitution to stakeholders and other interested parties. If a limited amount of initial research suffices, the Centre will try to answer your question immediately. In other cases, the Centre can help people start their own investigation by referring them to relevant archives. Examples of questions are:

•    Where can I find more information about the provenance of a painting?

•    In which archives can I find information about art belonging to my family that was looted during the occupation?

•    Where can I submit a request for restitution?

Requests for information can be sent to
